Fans question single red card for double tip tackle

Fans question single red card for double tip tackle

Italy prop Andrea Lovotti received a red card on Friday for a nasty tip take on South Africa number eight Duane Vermeulen but fans are now questioning why only one player was sent off.

Fellow Italian prop Nicola Quaglio was also involved in the tackle, which saw Vermeulen land on his head shortly after the half time break.

World Rugby has since announced that both players will attend a disciplinary hearing in Tokyo on 6 October.

The Springboks scored a further five tries following Lovotti’s departure and the game ended 49-3 to South Africa. Full match highlights and reaction to the incident is available below:
